MP3: Moe Green - "Lights, Camera, Action" (Bonus Track)

Vallejo California's Rising Son Introduces Wrestlemania Music With Rocky Maivia Bonus Track

The Song:

"Lights, Camera, Action," the bonus track off Moe Green's debut LP, Rocky Maivia: Non-Title Match, is the quintessential fight song. Fresh off a Show & Prove feature in this month's XXL Magazine, the KMEL Freshmen 10 rapper delivers a fusion of braggadocio and punch line metaphors, a driving kick-to-snare combination, a triumphant staccato, and the distant clamor of an uproarious crowd for this epic opus. "It's what I call wrestlemania music," notes Moe. "It gets you ready to do something big." Produced by Rob-E, who handles production duties on Moe's forthcoming LP To Whom It May Concern, "Lights, Camera, Action" is an adaptation from French electro-house artist Kavinsky, known for his style reminiscent of 1980s film soundtracks.

Available only on the limited edition pressing of physical CDs, "Lights, Camera, Action" is in essence, Moe's closing remarks regarding the state of hip-hop and a declaration of his arrival to the game. Calling out Jabronis and spent emcees alike with barbed banter like: "Your times over/ You too old, bro/ There's new blood here/ Put your toes up," Moe sends out a strong affirmation of his intent to claim the title and rise among the ranks of hip-hop heavyweights. "If you stay ready, you don't have to get ready," notes the poised emcee. "Because when it's your time to shine you'll already be glowing."

"80 Blocks From Tiffany's" To Be Re-Released After 25 Years


From Audible Treats:

"80 Blocks From Tiffany's" To Be Re-Released After 25 Years

Portrait Of 1970s Era South Bronx And Gang Activity Now Accompanied By Bonus Features, 40-Page Book

(August 17, 2010 - New York, NY) Five Day Weekend and Traffic Entertainment are proud to announce the upcoming DVD release of 80 Blocks From Tiffany's, director Gary Weis' 1979 documentary about the South Bronx and its gang culture. The previously unavailable film will be released in the Fall of 2010, the first time it has been offered to the public in decades, and will be accompanied by a handful of exciting bonus features.

Director Gary Weis was still working as a short film creator for Saturday Night Live when he came up with the idea for 80 Blocks after reading a Jon Bradshaw article, "Savage Skulls." Published in a 1977 issue of Esquire Magazine, the piece centered on two gangs based in the South Bronx at the time -- the Savage Nomads and the Savage Skulls. Weis became infatuated with the story and, soon after striking up a dialogue with Bradshaw, he convinced SNL producer Lorne Michaels to help him produce the film. Just two years later, in 1979, Weis and Bradshaw brought a camera crew to speak with members of both gangs, along with police officers, community activists, and civilians.

Despite its role as an important and unflinching portrait of a profoundly interesting time in New York's cultural history, 80 Blocks was, for many years, impossible to find, only briefly available as an educational VHS release in 1985. In the years since its initial release, the documentary has gained an overwhelming cult status. With little to no news coverage over the decades since its release dedicated fans continued to buzz about the film. That buzz grewexponentially via the internet, which provided fans a common platform to fondly look back not only the at documentary itself, but the era that it captured so vividly.

The cries of many have been heard. For the first time in 25 years, the soon-to-be-released DVD will be accessible by the public, and will include interviews with producer/filmmaker Weis and director of photography Joan Churchill, as well as a 40 page book comprised of the original "Savage Skulls" article, an essay by David Hollander, and artwork by Julian Allen. All of this is, of course, to accompany both full and widescreen versions of the film that started it all.
